HTML - Video Download (Save As Dialog Box on Click Command)

On my website, I currently have links to various video files that play in an online screening room. Due to the large file size, I want to have a download button next to each video link.

What code do I use so that when someone clicks on the download button it automatically brings up the Save Dialog Box instead of a new window? I think I have to store a copy of the video in the FTP folder and direct the link toward this.

Any one know the proper way to do this. Much appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi:

There are many ways to allow user to download files. But I suggest you to use download manager, because it provides you lot of infomation about the download, users information and so. Here is one freeware script :

Yes, for big file ftp is suitable besides you can use the download manager web panel to upload files.
